1998 Subaru Legacy Brighton 4dr Wagon AWD


My second Subaru and probably not the last, the Legacy L wagon has been a good partner for our family. I would wish for a bit more torque at low rev and a more refibned interior design. I experienced the "classic" valve tapping assigned to many Subaru models. I will get that taken care of by the dealrship soon.
Good gas mileage (27/35), enough room for 4 plus camping gears, safe (all wheel drive, ABS).

Best Features

All wheel drive, reliability. I don't have to think about the car, turn the key start the engine and just go

Worst Features

More torque below 3000 rpm, again really more torque below 3000 rpm... Subaru should resolve the valve tapping issue. More appealing interior (even than that of the 2002)
